Here are four happy moments from the last week - things that have cheered me up and made me smile
1. Postal Delivery - of a package full of beautiful things. I was so lucky to be chosen to receive the super give-away offered by Simone who makes these beautiful pieces of jewellery herself with such thought to detail and colour, I'm afraid that my photos don't do them justice. I'm thrilled with both the bracelet and the pendant. Do pop along to see Simone's work on her blog at Linden Grove and also in her on-line shop Thank you, Simone!
2. Theatre Visit - we usually have to travel to Stratford to see the RSC but this week they came to Stoke with their touring production of The Winter's Tale, and with the blustery wind in the city centre on Wednesday evening it did feel that we had taken a step back to winter, but all was cosy and warm in the theatre. It was a wonderful production and the set was amazing. We had a lovely evening and the three hours plus of the performance went by so quickly.
3. Nesting Birds - at home..... We have wrens nesting in a bird box at the back of the house. We can sit in the conservatory and watch the little birds land in the branches of the tree, their beaks full of moss and then position themselves up to make the flight to the little hole in the wooden house which they have lined with moss and other garden bits and pieces. I took the photo of one of the wrens through the window.
4. First Butterfly - of the season, a Peacock resting on one of the walls around the raised beds in the garden. The sun was warm enough for it to open its wings and stay awhile - just long enough for me to take its photo.
